I have installed Microsoft Office 2007 with help of this answer using WineTricks.

I need to integrate Adobe Acrobat Pro XI into Word to produce high quality PDFs.

So I have a question - how to make Acrobat PDFMaker working on Ubuntu using Wine?


One can install Adobe Acrobat Pro XI by the method similar to the MathType installation (to the same WINEPREFIX) and following this answer about Acrobat Pro by steps below:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
export WINEPREFIX=~/.local/share/wineprefixes/office2007pro
sh ./winetricks msxml3 msxml6 wininet ie8 vcrun6 atmlib

Then it will add Acrobat panel to the Word 2007 ribbon:

Acrobat Ribbon

and clicking Create PDF will start PDF creation process with progress bar window

Acrobat PDFMaker

and will finish by showing PDF document.

Note: method is fully-functional, but embedded Mathtype equations look weird in resulting PDF document.
